With TCT I have organized a 21 days tour for my family: my wife, my 9 years old daughter and me (in august ) We asked to Rebecca (our TCT consultant), who has patiently worked for more than 6 months on all details, to see, not only the most interesting things but to understand a little the Chinese way of life. The goal of the journey was to let my daughter to see different way of life and unusual (for us) landscape. The other objective was to visit China like a Chinese tourist can do. All these things weren’t easy to organize, but after more than six months of planning we were exited to visit the Country and we had really high expectation. It seems impossible but all the goals have been reached and TCT make us to live unforgettable visit of China. During the organization of the tour Rebecca suggested us to add some destinations to our trip and that makes our trip something unique. One the most interesting thing is that in most of the hotel (all 4 stars – western standard- and really comfortable) we never meet western people, that mean we were out of usual tour. All the guides had high professional behavior, knowledge and did their best to let us to see as much as possible. Consider that we were with a 9 years old child and nothing went wrong. All the drivers, considering the traffic situation in China, have been super! They did all the best in order to take us closer to all attractions in the safest way. Guides and drivers has been very flexible. Some days we have been together more than 12 hours! All the guides make arrangement of the tour in order to avoid queue and visit more. That has surprise me a lot. We have visited places like Mt.Huangshan, Hongcun Village (set of the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Tulou in Fujian , Shaolin Zen Music Ritual in Denfeng (a show that worth the journey in China – the biggest stage we ever seen - , suggested by Rebecca) or arhat clay statues at White Horse Temple in Louyang ( if you have seen Terraccota Army in Xi’an you will remain astonished in front of this sculptures), descending from Grat Wall with a toboga, ride a bike on Xi’an city wall or visit a daily market in Beijing. We have attended to the Mask Changing show and 1000 Hands Dance , few minute show but hard to find in a show. Just to list some of the wonderful things we have experienced. But, the most astonishing thing has been that in some places “we were the attraction”. Western people were so unusual that parents asked to my daughter to take pictures with their children !!! Very Chinese !!! In Guilin we meet Rebecca from TCT after little bit less than one year of e-mails ! A great moment too. The only thing that TCT could not manage was the weather, but we have been lucky. Quite always blues sky and just one day of heavy rain. We could not ask more ! A special thanks to our guides Tony around Huangshan, Candy in Shangai, Mike in Xi’an, Mina in Fujian and Shane in Luoyang. And a special special thanks to Linda in Beijing and Tina in Guilin that have done so much for us in order satisfy all our wishes! Deep knowledge, flexibility and enthusiasm made us to enter in Chinese culture. . Interesting, safe and well organized! We are thinking to visit more China in the future with TCT, we trust them !

The Top China Travel organised for 40 persons a tour in Guilin, Beijing, Xi'an area and especially in Gansu province. All things e.g. transport (flight, train tickets, bus) accommodation and guide service was professional, also in the remote area of Badain Jaran Desert or Qilian Mountain in Gansu province where organisation of the trip for a big group is not always easy. Months of contact with TCT office (responsible Janet Chan) was professional, reliable and always fast so all details were clear before the group departure. During the trip the the guide/office work was also excellent which is important for big groups (but also for small groups or family). The trip was without major problems. The smaller one, which always can happen, was resolved fast by the TCT (Janet Chan). That proves the high quality of the Tour Operator. I can recommend Top China Travel as an reliable Tour Operator for groups or individual travellers to organise a tour in most known China tourist spot but also to more remote areas. Maciej

We were met at the airport by Christina Xiena from TCT at Xi'an train station. She was curtious and extremely knowledgeable. She started telling us the history of our scheduled itinerary in the car on the way to the hotel. That inspired and excited us for our upcoming visit to Xi'an. She was enthusiastic, energetic and protective. The hotel was great too. She took us to the Terracotta Army excavations, the Huashan Mountain, Thai Chi demonstration on the Wall of the City, calligraphy at the TangBo Museum, arranged our massages at her local salon (amazing!), Muslem area trip, pearl factory, lots of food and shopping. She was so willing to accommodate our every whim. She put me and my friend on the plane to Shanghai and helped us get our extra luggage on the plane using contacts from her travel company. In Shanghai we were met by Vicky. Another great guide. She knew how to get us around the city and most certainly spoke very good English. She took us to the Silk factory, Bottle opener building (Shanghai financial center) , Water city (unexpected add-on to the tour), Buddhist temple, plenty shopping and food. The hotel was great again. We recommend this travel company. You will never be disappointed. You can trust them from all angles.

Top China Travel put together a fantastic tour for my wife, myself and another couple. We started in Shanghai, then went to Guilin, on to Chengdu, Xian and ending in Beijing. All the stops, travel, tours and meals were handled by TCT and their guides without so much as a hick-up. Great job done by all!!! Everyone was so helpful and willing to address any questions we may of had to make sure our trip was the best which it was. Guilin in the south with the rice fields (best meal we had was with the local family) to the Li River cruise was the best. Also found a great little massage shop by hotel that we took advantage of 2 nights. Chengdu was all about the Pandas, too cute for words. :) Xian and the Terra Cotta warriors was simple spectacular and ending in Beijing with a rickshaw ride and the Great Wall. It couldn't of been better unless we had more time to spend with them. We can't say enough about Maggie from TCT who helped pull it all together for us and put up with all my questions and changes. To the tour guides and big thank you for taking care of us when we were with you and finally to our drivers, I don't know how you guys do it but hats off to the bunch of you...great job! Look forward to a return trip.

We had our 8 day trip from Beijing to Tibet from 5/19/17 to 5/26/17. We had a great trip. From the beginning when we contacted our agent, to the time everything is arranged, then when we actually got there, it was well organized, everything we wanted, we got it. The price was reasonable, the tour guides and drivers were very knowledgeable, caring, responsible, and flexible. We saw the culture, beautiful scenes, and friendly people there. It was an unforgettable trip, we are very satisfied.

I went on a Top China Travel group tour. Everything was so well organised that I never had to worry about anything. I really liked that the group was small and it felt like we were a big group of old-friends all travelling together, not just a passenger on the bus. Every hotel, guide, driver and restaurant was very well picked. I was very happy with how well-informed each guide was, how flexible they were to ensure we all had a great time, and their English was all very good. At every step of the way, guides had us fill in a Top China Travel feedback form which I am certain the company take very seriously since their service was so good. I will be passing on their details to all my friends and family who want to travel in China.

We hired TCT as a private guide with car for travel to Beijing, Shanghai and Huanzhou. TCT prepared the day-by-day program, booked first class hotels and train tickets and arranged for very good English speaking guides, among them Cathy in Beijing was amamzing. The cars were veryy good, the drivers were diriving very well but carefully. The program was followed with a very high degree of precision and the guides and drivers allowed also for flexibility. We enjoyed the trip very much and also very much appreciated the services provided bt TCT. The attractions included were paid in advance.

We visited Beijing, Xian, Guilin, and Hong Kong. Our agent Rebecca was very helpful setting up the trip and very responsive to our questions. Our guide in Beijing, Linda, was a joy to be around. We made a friendship with her as we ended up spending a lot of time together. This personal service is most valuable to me as a seasoned world traveler who is used to solo travel. Having her as a guide made me feel like I knew someone in Beijing who was taking me to all those places I had previously only read about. Xian is cultural and Guilin is beautiful and we are so happy with our selection and with TCT.

My daughter and I recently did a private 13 day tour with TCT starting in Beijing and ending in Shanghai. We went to Xian, Guilin and on a 3 night Yangtze river cruise. I did a lot of research before using TCT as last year we had a very bad experience with a tour company in Morocco which really spoiled our whole holiday. Obviously doing a private tour is much more expensive but well worth the money. From the beginning my dealings with Bonnie were so personal. It was so nice to be met at airports/stations by a private guide and drivers. I loved the fact that the guides did all the check-ins at airports and at the station for the Bullet train from Beijing to Xian. I was so glad that Linda could accompany us right to the waiting room at station as there were thousands of people at the station and it could have been quite overwhelming. All the hotels that we stayed in were above my expectations for China. All our guides and drivers were very attentive and enthusiastic . We are vegetarians and all the guides made sure that they helped us find food at lunch time. Linda our guide in Beijing wrote a note saying we were vegetarians which we used in the evenings at restaurants for the whole trip. At the great wall of China we went up the chair lift and tobogganed down. My only criticism would be that we would have preferred to go up with the cable car and then walk all the way along the wall to the toboggan ride. Unfortunately when we said we want to toboggan down the guide decided that we should go up the chair lift as it is closer to the toboggan. I felt that we did not have enough time on the wall. My advice is for the guide to give all the options as the walk from the cable car is quite long and not everybody might want to walk so far. The Terracotta warriors were another highlight of the trip. Lucy we loved your selfie app....we want it too :) We loved the Li river cruise in Guilin and our guide Michelle even brought us a special vegetarian packed lunch as often the cruise does not have vegetarian options for lunch. She was so attentive on the cruise and pointed out all the special highlights of the cruise, something I did not see all the other guides doing. On our flight from Xian to Guilin there was not vegetarian option for us. I mentioned this to Bonnie and she then arranged that when we flew from Guilin to Chongqing that Cherry, who met us at the airport to take us to the Boat Cruise, had a vegetarian meal for us. Also when we disembarked in Yichang, Victor also brought along a vegetarian packed lunch for us. Jakob our guide in Shanghai practically became our family in the few days that we spent with him. He had the most amazing sense of humor and made us laugh every day. Thank you for the very special Chilli sauce. Bianca eats it on practically everything. To Bonnie and all the guides... Linda, Lucy, Michelle, Cherry, Victor and Jakob... thank you for making this one of the most memorable trips that we have ever done. Also big thank you to all the very proficient drivers for keeping us safe on the 'wild' Chinese roads. China is an amazingly beautiful and vibrant country to visit. Just one suggestion: On the itinerary mention all the optional shows that one can attend in different cities and suggest booking before you go. We were unable to go to the show in Shanghai as it was a weekend and fully booked by the time we asked our guide.
